Nortel Networks mediation ends without agreement on $9 billionUS-NORTEL-MEDIATION:Nortel Networks mediation ends without agreement on $9 billion
(Reuters) - Creditors of bankrupt telecoms company Nortel Networks failed to reach a deal to split $9 billion among U.S., Canadian and European insolvency and bankruptcy proceedings, according to a statement from the mediator on Thursday.
The mediator, Warren Winkler, the Chief Justice of Ontario, said in a brief statement that he concluded further efforts at mediation are no longer worthwhile.
Retirees in Canada and the United Kingdom have been fighting for a larger portion of the cash against the company's bondholders.
